Additional Information

Notes historical bibliographic

The large scroll carving and the fleshy leaves are evidently baroque motifs typical of the Lombardy area; however the lightness of movement, the almost rocaille corolla as well as the chromatic taste that alternates gold and ivory, are typical of the fashion that overlooks Milan in the mid-18th century. On the other hand in those years, the most fashionable environment in the whole city, the Hall of Palazzo Clerici, represents a balance between baroque language and the new rococo proposals coming from Paris. The production of these two objects must therefore be placed in those years.

Style: Barocchetto (1720-1770)

With this term we designate, for what specifically relates to furniture, a part of the production carried out in Italy in the period of time between the Rococo era and the first phase of neoclassicism.
It is characterized by the formal and decorative structure still rigidly adhering to the dictates dear to the Baroque period (hence the term baroque) and to the Louis XIV fashions and yet the new times are captured in the adoption of smaller volumes, more decorative modules. elegant, often directly inspired by French fashion, but always executed with rigorous principles of ornamental symmetry.
The tendency to assimilate formal and volumetric novelties but not to incorporate their ornamental elaboration finds natural explanation in Italy in the fact that in this century the great aristocracy experienced an unstoppable political and economic decline.
If in the previous century there was a great profusion of furnishings destined to adorn newly built homes, to proudly show the power of the client family, in the eighteenth century they rather take care to update the building with only the furniture strictly necessary for the new needs imposed by fashion or functional needs.
The old scenographic apparatus is maintained and the new must not contrast too much.
